Victor Herbert was a hematologist, Army veteran of four wars, and a staunch opponent of what he considered health fraud. His self-experimentation demonstrating that folate deficiency results in anemia is documented in Lawrence Altman’s book “Who Goes First?”

Herbert died at 75 of melanocytoma, a rare form of neurological cancer.
